Exquisite

Janda’s through research coupled with her keen intuition cuts these iconic songs to the bone. You’ll be sure to learn something you didn’t know or had never occurred to you to consider before. And you get to hear it all spoken to you in a voice that’s dark, like tinted glass yet beautiful and rhythmic.

More women rockers!

I love your podcasts on digging deeper into the lyrics of classics. Let’s hear about some female singer/song writers too. Heart, Joan Jett, and some many great singers from the 90’s...I am looking forward to it!

Guessing at the meaning of lyrics?

Love the concept of the show and getting the scoop of what the song writer really meant when writing the song. Which does periodically happen in this podcast. But when this narrator of this show periodically says things like “hazarding a guess” about what a lyric means, I kind of feel that defeats the purpose of this podcast. I could guess all day what the lyrics mean and really don’t care what other people “guess” it means. Maybe skip those lyrics you don’t know or choose a different song.
